I I recall with delight my first opportunity to lecture about visual storytelling. That moment in 2001 aroused a desire to educate those willing to listen. My passion for instruction guided me, lecturing in nearly 30 states at conferences, colleges, news-stations and workshops. I added part-time adjunct professor to my resume in 2009. I balanced teaching and full time video-work for a couple of years. After nearly 15 years in newsrooms and production houses I left to focus my passion on instruction. I will likely teach until I die. I’m so much more than a teacher. I’m a manager, counselor, work-force trainer, comedian, motivational speaker and friend. I tell my students they are on a journey; I’m just the guide.

I also provide individual tutoring on Adobe Photoshop and Premiere. I can teach you how to shoot video and how to edit video.

Showcasing my students

am proud of my students when they succeed beyond my instruction.  Here are a few success stories.
